RAMALLAH, Tuesday, September 27, 2022 (WAFA) – The Prisoners Affairs Commission said today that its lawyer, Hiba Saleh, documented the severe beating of two Palestinian minors at the hands of Israeli forces during detention.
According to the attorney, Diyar Ivan Salibi, 16, from the town of Beit Ummar in the south of the West Bank, was severely beaten, kicked, and hit with a gun butt when he was arrested at his home before he was taken to a detention center in a settlement where he was kept for nine days after which he was moved to Damon prison in the north of Israel.
Ahmad Ziad Nimr, 17, from Kufr Aqab, a northern Jerusalem neighborhood, was detained near Lions Gate in the old city of Jerusalem. He was severely beaten by Israeli police when he and other youths were arrested before he was taken to the Russian Compound police station in West Jerusalem where he underwent interrogation for one hour.
He was then placed, cuffed in the hands and legs, in the infamous interrogation room number 4, which does not have cameras, and where he was beaten severely and interrogated for two hours.
Nimr was then taken to court, which extended his detention.
During the detention, he was severely beaten before he was taken to the minors ward in Damon prison.
